The primary goal of the physical education program at Kent School is for the children to understand the importance of making fitness an integral part of their lives. Students will build a solid foundation of skills in a wide range of activities. Throughout the year, students are encouraged to set individual, as well as team, goals.
Lower School students participate in activities that emphasize fundamental locomotor movements, throwing and kicking with purpose and accuracy, maneuvering around people and objects, working toward a common goal, learning how to be a good team member and building solid leadership skills. Cooperation and trust are emphasized. Every unit begins with learning fundamental skills, is followed by more complicated drills and culminates in game simulations.
